7:05 am
wife by phone last night. she has not been in contact with her husband but urged everyone to wait for his side of the story and she's relieved that none of the passengers was hurt. >> i'll athank you. two passengers on that flight, david gonzalez and sarah. on the flight. good morning to you both. let me begin with you first, when did you know that something was terribly wrong? >> well, something weird first happened. i had gone into the bathroom, as i was finishing up, all of a sudden, i heard a couple of loud bangs on the door. i couldn't understand why, i just thought it was somebody who didn't notice i was in there. then the door started getting pulled open. then i heard two dings going off. later found out that those dings were because the locked door was being tampered with. as i was in there, the pilot
7:06 am
said i've got to get in there, i've got to get in there. i thought maybe he was sick. i didn't realize until i basically saw him beeline for the door. >> right. david, how did you become involved? >> i actually seen him trying to break into the door of the cockpit. and they tried to apprehend the guy, and the occupation from the cockpit ended up towards the side door, and i was assuming that he was going to open the door. so i went up to assist the stewardess. one was injured. and she said, you can help me. he kept pointing at me and says, you need to pray. he started talking about iraq and iran. as soon as he pointed at me, i
7:07 am
grabbed his arm and i put him in a choke hold where it was a little struggle for him to get to his throat, to subdue him. so, anyway, what happened was, i got him to the point where his -- i was able to cut his wind pipe, and his knees buckled. so i was able to drag him to the aisle to take him down. and once he went down, we got a lot of support from the people. and once we actually had him handcuffed and everything, we wanted to make sure that the passengers were okay. i was trying to educate them that we had the scene under control. but it was a frightening moment at the time. and a lot of people were fearing for their lives. and, you know what, it was something that, you know, i've never experienced before. i was just happy i was able to get him down to the floor. >> well, so many of you were heading to that security conference. it was good fortune that so many
7:08 am
of you were trained. didn't he break out of the restraints at one point, and you had to use your belts? >> yes. there were a couple of friends of mine on the plane, i requested, give me one of his belts. at that time, they had used the extension. because he broke the ones for the legs. he just snapped those. but i had already put enough pressure on his neck that he was slowly out. and then he was coming to. so i just wanted to make sure that if he decided to get back up, i was going to be able to control him. but there was so many people that came in and assisted me in keeping him down. we actually landed the plane with me on top of the guy. >> i have to tell you guys, the seeing of sarah and david coming together in those moments. quick thinking from everyone. up hear the pilot saying these things, iraq and iran. i know what you said, david,
7:09 am
i'll show you iraq and iran and you put him in a choke hold. but, sarah, what was everyone doing when dave and the others were subduing the pilot? >> besides the ones that you saw were anxious about taking the videos. everything was still into the what if. what if he had gotten into that cockpit, what would he have done. i know at one moment, i looked to one of my bosses who was sitting next to me i must have had the fear in my eyes. he got up and he was one of the gentlemen that helped david to keep him pinned down until we landed. other than that, it was kind of what was going on, what made this pilot -- something triggered him. it was more of -- it was a guessing game, pretty much. >> i know. we're waiting to hear. david, the final question for you, more of a statement, you say and the other passengers, you give a lot of credit to the
7:10 am
co-pilot for having the presence of mind to lock that pilot out of the cockpit? >> that's correct. he almost got in there. and that's when i -- i seen the door buckle a little bit. and then the stewardess kind of took him away from that door. if he would have went inside that cockpit, i would have had a challenge taking him out thereof. it would have been a lot more difficult. >> sarah, thank you. david, thank you as well. next time i take a flight, david, i hope you're sitting next to me. >> you're welcome. >> let's bring in our aviation consultant john nance. john, we just heard david gonzalez say this is a textbook example of the co-pilot, the passengers all doing the exact thing. >> there are, george. one after 9/11, we have seen this consistently over and over again, passengers are not going to sit by idly before we have before 9/11.
7:11 am
everyone is going to get involved. secondly, the co-pilot did exactly what we expect of the flight officers. it doesn't matter whether you're the captain or co-pilot, one person can easily land the plane. but he had a high level of catch dense to take charge. this is an accolade to his company because they had the assurance. >> john, we never had an accident like to this before in the united states but should the pilots' screening, they all get a physical every single year, have picked up a potential problem like this? >> this is one of the big questions, george. we're going to have to get to the bottom of this. over time, were there indications that it could have been seen, it could have been caught by anybody that scale in contact with both him and the airline. we have a monitoring system, it's not formal in any way. it's 00 kind of a neural network of which we're all aware of everybody else. and sometimes maybe it needs to be reaffirmed. that people need to be careful that when they see something a
7:12 am
little erratic. but there may not have been anything erratic. this is a very sad breakdown. we're all human. i think his wife is exactly right, wait till you hear not the other side but what might have been behind this. >> there's so much in the air right now, we have to pay attention to these potential mental health problems? >> we absolutely do. we're all human. that's the bottom line. now to the latest on the shooting of trayvon martin. new details about the crucial hours of the investigation and the decision not to press charges against the shooter. abc's matt gutman has the story. >> reporter: abc news has learned just hours after the fight and the gunshot that killed trayvon martin -- >> gunshots -- >> reporter: -- the homicide officer investigating the case recommended george zimmerman be brought up on manslaughter charges. but sources tell abc news when
7:13 am
the it was center to the state attorney general's office that night it was reported that there wasn't enough evidence to convict. and there were missteps, including a failure to test zimmerman that night for drugs or alcohol. zimmerman claimed self-defense, but that night, he spotted martin and called police. >> are you following him? >> yeah. >> okay, we don't need you to do that. >> reporter: he then turned back to his truck, and that's when zimmermanle reportedly says martin confronted him. ultimately punching zimmerman in the nose, pouncing and slamming his head on the ground. abc news has learned that the original police report classified the shooting as an unnecessary killing to prevent an unlawful act. >> he's sadly missed. >> reporter: trayvon martin's parents said their son would still be alive had he not been the victim of racial profiling.
7:14 am
>> of course, my heart is broken. but it breaks even more to know that we have not gotten justice yet. >> reporter: and the family says their had son is still being victimized. >> there are so many things now where they're trying to give blame to the victim, demonize the victim. >> robin, there's been so much interest and also so much misinformation about this case. get this, a man in california tweeted out what he thought was the address of george zimmerman here in sanford, florida. it was the wrong george zimmerman. the poor family that lived there was so inundated by phone calls and threats they had to leave their home. >> all right, matt, thank you. because this case has sparked such an emotional response tonight on abc news radio, i'll host a live town hall, race and justice. we have great guests, parents, children of all races, law enforcement officials. and we're going to have a frank discussion.

7:16 am
do have the balance of power, had withering questions for the nation's lawyers about whether or not the government has the power to require people to buy health insurance. the centerpiece of the law. they expressed doubts about that. we don't know how they're going to rule, george. they will deliberate until june on this. this was an ominous start. >> you're right. the decision will come right in the middle of the presidential campaign. it's kind of hard to read that the campaign would doom the president's law but we don't know what impact it would have on the campaign? >> we sure know it would be a rallying cry if this court, a 5-4 condition decision, were to strike down that law. and also take away the issue for republicans. >>ic? ly, jon, the new poll, with the president opening up the gap on mitt romney? >> yeah, 53% favor obama. 34% for romney. look at this, unfavorable numbers, 54% right now have an

7:31 am
we begin with the stunning involvement of the 18-year-old who moved in with her much older high school teacher. the mother has been on a mission to put the teacher in jail and now she's pushing for a new law that would make any commission like this a crime. abc's cecilia vega has the latest. >> good morning, george. the lawmaker helping this mother push for this new law says there's already 23 states around the country with similar laws on the books. this one makes it a crime for teachers to date their students, putting them behind bars, stripping them of their public school pension. >> i don't want another child, another family to be in this is position. >> reporter: she is a mother waging a war and her daughter back and to prevent her nightmare from ever happening to another parents. >> i am angry, i'm frustrated. >> reporter: tammie powers is making her case everywhere she can. from "the dr. phil show." and now, all of the way to the california state capitol. and her 18-year-old jordan recently left home and moved in with her boyfriend, 41-year-old
7:32 am
james hooker. yes, the age difference has this mother outraged, but even more than that, until just a few weeks ago. hooker was jordan's high school teacher. >> he's more than just a lover. >> i would say i am in love. >> reporter: it is a love that drove hooker to leave his wife and kids to quit his job. now this former teacher and his former student, share an apartment together. they say their relationship became physical, only after jordan turned 18. >> i will encourage each and every state to adopt this law, or a similar law. i would like to see a national registry, as a reference point for employers. >> reporter: and california lawmakers are listening. introducing a new bill tuesday that would make it a felony for a public school teacher to date a student in the same school, regardless of age. >> for his or her teacher to
7:33 am
manipulate their position of authority and take advantage of that student is wrong. >> reporter: on "good morning america," hooker and jordan repeatedly deend iffed their relationship, saying nothing happened while he was still mr. hooker. >> they don't care about the rest of the details. they see it as wrong. >> what are the rest of the details that matter to you? because a lot of the people will say, the details don't matter, you're her teacher. >> was her teacher. >> reporter: jordan is no longer attending high school classes. she's in independent study. hooker plans to file for divorce. >> what makes this worth it? >> i think at some point, you take a leap of faith when love is involved. >> reporter: jordan's mom wants hooker arrested. there is a police investigation, but so far, no criminal charges. as for her daughter, tammie powers thinks she's been brainwashed and hopes this new law will mean no other teacher runs off with a student. >> i'm planning on taking this as a national campaign, encouraging each and every state, more or less, it's my way to channel this anger, frustration, helplessness into something productive.
7:34 am
protecting students. protecting kids. >> we spoke to jordan. she says she has no opinion on this new law. she says she and james hooker are staying out of the media now. and, george, they just want to move on with their life. >> i bet they do. let's bring in dan abrams. for more on this. first thing's first. this new law that is passed will have nothing to do with this case. >> right, ex post facto laws are not permitted under the u.s. constitution. meaning you can criminalize something after it's happened. so this law won't have any impact on this. >> more than 28 states have laws even if the teacher is over 18. this goes a bit further, it would criminalize so-called seductive communications. >> seductive, lewd and lascivious, i understand. the problem is it refers to excessive and inappropriate conduct with a student. that's where it gets a little tough to define. some might view constant political conversations as
7:35 am
inappropriate with particular students. >> religious? >> exactly. exactly. so you've got to be careful when you're framing the language around this. because it sounds what the legislators are doing is reacting to this specific case and saying how do we prevent this kind of case from even getting to this point. and while their goals may be admirable, you have to be very careful in that. >> do we have any sense in how laws like this have been put in place? do they have some kind of a deterrent effect? >> i do think, i'm not a big believer that a lot of criminalizing things making things more significant crimes has a real deterrent impact. this kind of crime might in a sense it really might make a teacher who is thinking about what do on the 18th birthday of a prospective student, think, well -- she's 18 are or, she's 18, and it will be okay. >> they know the consequences? >> exactly. they know exactly what the age is and at what point did the
7:36 am
relationship start. i do think a law like this could have something of a deterrent effect, although i don't think it's suddenly going to avoid this sort of issue ever happening. >> thanks. now, to the shocking murder of that science teacher in vermont. the community reeling over the death of melissa jenkins. her family holding out hope right now for some kind of a break through in the case to find out who did this. abc's linsey davis has the latest. >> good morning, robin. the state police just wrapped up a press conference where they announced the news that the small town has been so anxious to hear. arrest in the murder of a 33-year-old melissa jenkins, a married couple. they also released the cause of death, strangulation. taken into custody, 30-year-old al alan prugh and his wife,
